Defenders 3 Cover - Start to Finish

So here's my process for creating the cover to Defenders #3.

First I do a little sketch that I send to Marvel for approval - a 5 x 7" marker drawing done in my sketchbook then colored in Photoshop CS3.

Next, I pencil at 11 x17 on 2 Ply Bristol Board.

Rachel then inks with a brush and ink.

First pass at coloring (in Photoshop).

Final pass at coloring after notes from Marvel.
